Huddersfield Town 0 Chelsea 3: Disappointing result, not display, claims Wagner

Huddersfield Town 0 Chelsea 3: Disappointing result, not display, claims Wagner

Maurizio Sarri is fairly transparent while stalking the touchline and that was never more obvious than when reacting to Alvaro Morata.

Hazard came on for Willian with just 15 minutes of the game remaining but that was enough time for him to make an impression and really stake his claim as one of the best players in the Premier League once again.

"This is understandable after this good first half and you sit at half-time and you are 2-0 down".

"Maybe the performances in the first part of the season will not be in line with the potential of the squad".

Huddersfield enjoyed more possession towards the half-hour mark as Steve Mounie's rising effort cleared the crossbar and a series of crosses from Town left-back Chris Lowe tested Chelsea's defence.

But manager Mauricio Pochettino has insisted he is happy just to have retained a host of players who excelled at the World Cup and it was two of them who handed Spurs all three points at Newcastle.

What Sarri will know is that the 27-year-old has the engine to act as a box-to-box midfielder, doing as many defensive duties as before but adding something further forward too. Subs: Diakhaby 5, Depoitre 6.

"We (Chelsea) have to play at another speed".

Undisturbed by the pressure and jeering of the Huddersfield fans, Jorginho calmly dispatched his penalty with a skip before striking the ball - a technique some at Chelsea will have already seen in their pre-season shootouts.

Pujara and Kohli were involved in a run out which led to Pujara's wicket and turned the match in England's favour. The all-rounder's unbeaten 120, coupled with 93 from Jonny Bairstow , took the hosts to 357-6, a lead of 250.

Eyes were obviously on debutants Jorginho and Arrizabalaga and the pair gave excellent accounts of themselves, with the former scoring a cheeky penalty in the first half.

Chelsea went ahead in the first half through a World Cup victor in N'Golo Kante, as he got on the end of a Willian cross and despite not quite connecting with the ball as he would have liked, he found the corner of the net.

Chelsea: Kepa 6, Azpilicueta 6, Rudiger 6, Luiz 7, Alonso7, Jorginho 8, Kante 7, Barkley 6, Pedro 7, Morata 6, Willian 8.

Substitutes: Caballero, Christensen, Zappacosta, Moses (N/A), Loftus-Cheek (7), Hazard (8), Giroud. It is expected that his influence will only grow, given his new, advanced role.

"Then we were 2-0 down after I think a good half and I think second half we started very slow, we were shocked".

As for Jorginho's spot-kick, he was made to look silly.

80' - GOAL! Huddersfield 0-3 Chelsea: A classic goal on the counter-attack from the Blues.

Since moving to the Premier League, the 2016/17 PFA Player of the Year has been an utter revelation and will definitely go down as one of the very best additions to English football considering his meteoric rise.
